In recent times, Kenya has experienced high levels of insecurity and bloody conflicts. This hinders the country’s potential for economic growth and diverts resources from development projects to security enforcement. The public is expected to share information on insecurity. However, this information has not been forthcoming because of accusations of corruption leveled against the police coupled with a public perception that the police do not act on cases that are reported to them.
Mulika Uhalifu platform seeks to promote and facilitate citizen participation in security. It enables anonymous crime reporting and monitoring by any member of the public. The system works on any type of handset available in Kenya. As the platform enables the public to report anonymously, the fear of victimization is eliminated since those receiving the information are unable to access the details of the sender. This system also allows citizens to report police misconduct without fear.
